With hindsight I can see that DS2 was born autistic, but I wouldn't believe it when the Paed suggested it. DS2 didn't startle, even when I was pregnant. He rarely slept & I couldn't get him to eat solids until he was 10mths old. He didn't respond to his name at pre-school, which was why we visited the first Paed. He was 2 and a half then. Diagnosed at 3.
If you have a smart phone you could video some of the behaviours you're concerned about. Take the videos to the Dr's appointment and take it from there.
A diagnosis can be a relief, because you know what you're working with. It's not going to change your child, it might just change how people treat your child. My son stopped being 'the naughty boy' and was treated better at pre-school and he got the help he needed
